A lot of information about the Genshin Impact 1.5 update has been leaked and it seems quite exciting for both new and old players of the game. As Genshin Impact's 1.4 event continues, players are looking forward to the next big update to miHoYo's hit open world RPG.

When to expect Genshin Impact 1.5

As the patch releases a month from the publishing of this article on Wednesday, w8 April, it gives players plenty of time to enjoy the Windblume Festival and get as many primogems as possible for the next few banners.

The release date follows miHoYo's typical pacing and all signs seem to point to this date as the release of Genshin Impact 1.5.

What is coming in Genshin Impact 1.5?

There have been many datamines about the content of Genshin Impact 1.5 from the new housing system to a new difficult boss and even new story quests for players to complete.

It is safe to say that there will be a lot for players to do in Genshin Impact 1.5 and this might not even be all of it.

It may be unadvisable for players who wish to be unspoiled to watch any leaks, though the new content seems very exciting. Aside from this content, there seems to be the possibility of more hangout events for Diona and Noelle. Players might also be able to spend more time with their favorite Mondstadt characters.


The housing system also seems very robust, and will be a lot of fun for players who are big fans of customization.

What banners are coming to Genshin Impact patch 1.5?

Genshin Impact's banners are always the most exciting aspect of the game for the playerbase, and Genshin Impact 1.5 doesn't disappoint. The much hyped Zhongli seems to be making a return, alongside new characters Eula and Yanfei.

The exact configuration of the banners is currently unknown, though it is likely that Yanfei will be with Zhongli and Eula will be on her own banner, as she is a 5-star character.

If players are not rolling for Zhongli, they should keep an eye on Eula, as she seems very powerful. Rolling on Zhongli is advisable, however.


What else is known about Genshin Impact patch 1.5?

There seem to be many bosses added to the new patch of Genshin Impact like the Cryo Hypostasis and the Abyss Lector. There also seems to be new artifacts being added to the game, which may be powerful on the right characters.

These artifacts are known as the Tenacity of the Millelith and The Last Act of Foolishness.

These two artifact sets seem very strong for the right characters, so players should make sure to build each character correctly. With so much coming to Genshin Impact 1.5, players certainly have a lot to look forward to.
